Very nice place, super clean, very decent food.

I been living for over twenty years and had never eaten here. Then a buddy wanted to go there for for lunch. Glad he did. I just read the negative reviews and I don't understand them. But they are several years old. And frankly I disagree with them a 100%. First off the place is spotless... read more

Can't really think of something that stands out about this place, went for lunch with a group of friends, the chicken kabobs were quite small. Bathroom floor was oily and slippery.

No one does Greek cuisine better! I've tried many of the usual dishes, souvlaki, moussaka, dolmades and they all are delicious. They also offer Greek style ribs that melt in your mouth. Service is excellent. I highly recommend Five Columns.

My mom and I stopped here for lunch today during our trip to Bellingham. We were planning on going to another restaurant but when we found out they weren't open for lunch we Googled Greek restaurants in the area and Five Columns came up. What a pleasant surprise! The restaurant is quite large and looks typical of many other restaurants... More

Authenitic Greek and Americian food prepared and served by the nicest family you're likely to meet. If you're a regular, you'll feel like you've joined the family (your server is likely to remember what you normally order.) Sunday brunches are a favorite with after church groups -- maybe it's the tasty eggs benedict -- a house speciality, that's deliciously sinful.... More

Our large extended family has been frequenting this restaurant for years. The atmosphere is welcoming, staff friendly, and food yummy. We often go for breakfast on the weekends. They serve breakfast late into the afternoon, so some still have their favorite omelet, others have souvlaki off the lunch menu. They can seat a large group with a phone call in... More

We stopped here for lunch, and the Greek food was quite authentic and tasty. The Gyro meal was quite good, and my husband's chicken kabob was delicious marinated in some great flavors!

We really enjoy eating at Five Columns Restaurant. We appreciate the friendly service, good food, and the quiet atmosphere. Also, we like their moderate priced menu. Our favorites are the Sole Almondine, Baked Spaghetti and the Greek Salad. The family owners who all work in the business are always welcoming, and really do aim to please each customer.
